Media will warn you about the 4chan teen who sits in a basement hacking your pills.

I'm worried about the 35yo 4channer who works in a cube at google/facebook/amazon who uses the entire corporate surveillance dragnet to monitor every second of the lives of women he thinks owe him sex.


From Sherrilyn Ifill, the former president of the NAACP LDF:

It's loathsome for Alito to claim that letting states regulate abortion is okay because women have electoral power while also permitting conservative efforts to eliminate that, too.

'This year, we say "Never again" differently. We hear "Never Again" differently. It sounds painful, cruel. Without an exclamation, but with a question mark. You say: never again? Tell Ukraine about it' - president Zelensky

Russia heavily targeted both Germany and Ukraine with strategic corruption. Against all odds, Ukraine proved more resilient to it

Russia at start of invasion: we have completely destroyed the entire Ukrainian airforce.

Now: Ukraine wipes out air defenses on snake island, and then uses the TB2’s to film a bombing run with SU-27’s.

If ports in the region do not open up immediately, two things will happen:

First, we're going to have agricultural collapse across . Second, famines will be looming all over the world. Food needs to move, ports must reopen and this needs to happen NOW.

How easy? One team found that they could re-identify 50% of the devices in an anonymized location data set by analyzing *any two random data-points* from their movements:

Practically speaking: Safegraph's data can be used to identify nearly everyone who visits an abortion provider, and also reveal their home addresses and places of work. Naturally, Safegraph's CEO denied this. He lied.

Safegraph claims it will no longer sell location data linked to abortion clinics, but Safegraph is not a reliable source of information about Safegraph - and they're also not the only ad-tech snoops who could endanger people who get abortions and people who help them.

The forced-birth movement is extremely interested in period-tracking apps, which have long been a cesspool of commercial surveillance:

Pro choice is not solely about accidental pregnancies that are unwanted! It's about women's safety. It's about their bodies and minds. It's about healthy decisions for the mother and fetus. Often times these procedure are done due to unforseen complications.

I stand with those who make tough decisions for the greater good. For those who have been told endlessly what to do with their own bodies just to be reprimanded later. I support them because we need to support those who are silenced.

To complement , I also do on Saturday. (Because our regular Saturday walk brings us to my lovely bovine friends: the Scottish Highlanders)

So I've been on Mastodon for a wee bit, for all the new folks here's an #introduction: I'm an #agile #java lead developer, and dabble in #quantumtechnology.

I released a solo #deathmetal album last year on #bandcamp ( and I'm looking for #art to feature on my next #dutch #blackmetal album and for a #fantasy #horror book I'm writing on the same subject.

Big #overwatch and #starcraft gamer. Also into #pathfinder and #DnD.

Still finding my way in this marvelous fediverse

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

@wzzrd there you are! People, follow / interact with Maxim. He’s a great human.

New study shows that 94% of trans kids maintain their trans gender identity after 5 years while another 3.5% identified as nonbinary. This is a stark rebuttal of the bunk "desistance" numbers pushed by anti trans groups.

New shoes. Color pattern purely coincidental With current world affairs. (But great in any case)
